You Raise Me Up is a song by Secret Garden, a Norwegian-Irish duo. The lyrics were written by Brenda Graham and the music was by Rolf Lovland of Secret Garden. Since its release in 2002, it has been covered over 125 times by numerous artists. Josh Groban’s version is popular among them.
The song does not clearly mention God or anyone else as a person in the lyrics. Giving listeners the freedom to interpret it however they want. However, the song is closely related within the Christian community, which leads to the person of the song being God. God reaches out to us and lifts us up when we are down and tired of life’s struggles. Inspiring us to go on in life leaning on Him.
